We stayed for three nights, our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was outstanding and included 3 hot options each morning. They even provide breakfast in our fridge the night before we left as we were departing at 4:30 AM to catch a flight out of Cape Town.

We were greeted by friendly staff at this centrally-located guesthouse. The room was neat & clean, well-appointed and with stunning views of the surrounding area. Breakfast was yummy! We will go back!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Summerwood and would recommend it to friends. Therooms were good, luxurious beds and an excellent breakfast spread. The extra touches of a lounge and drinks facilities was appreciated. I was warmly welcomed and felt at home.

We stayed 2 nights in Summerwood and it was amazing. We booked on short notice and got the one room on the third floor (I think it was nr. 8) which was amazing!! the breakfast was also great and the general service was more than excellent; they helped us with bookings and managed to fulfil all our special requests.

Had a great stay at Summerwood - would definitely consider this guesthouse for my next stay. Had fantastic value for money, is located ideally in Stellenbosch in a quiet street. Breakfast was great, and staff was very friendly.

The house is beautiful, set in attractive gardens a few minutes walk from the centre of Stellenbosch. Comfortable furnishings, friendly service, excellent breakfast, good facilities for tea, coffee and refreshments. The odd creaky floorboard, but not enough to be disturbing. I'd love to come back again!

Our stay was for only 2 nights, but we could not have picked a better location or accommodation. The rooms are well furnished and quite spacious, with ample area to sit and relax, or read a book. The lounge area is also spacious. The pool area is well maintained, but we had no use for it in winter. Breakfast was... More

Our daughter got married in the Stellenbosch area at the end of April and we chose Summerwood Guest House to be our base for the week end. I cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful establishment. Everything was absolutely perfect, the staff wonderful, the meals delicious and the willingness to help outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone made... More

Summerwood is lovely, peaceful, quiet, comfy and with personal attention. Stylishly decorated, it felt like a boutique hotel. A comfy bed and a great breakfast. Although it felt quiet there was a good range of things for breakfast, as well as eggs on demand. Just what you need after an overnight flight!

Overall, we had a very pleasant stay at the Summerwood Guest House. Our room was spacious and clean and we had a lovely view of the lawns. The staff and owner were quite helpful, especially in assisting us with a flat tire on our rental car, when we were unable to reach anyone at the rental agency. There were a... More
